After talking about this idea off and on for about three years, and proposing it to various venues, I am launching a new project, Carbon Corpus. You can read about the project as it develops here, but a synopsis is that I will be selling the animal-based carbon credits to my body to people. In exchange I will eat a vegan diet for the period of time purchased. The project aims to examine the difficulties surrounding carbon reduction by individual choice in modern society.
An installation of the ephemera generated for this project will be part of the exhibition, S'Long As Its Yours, at Gallery Aferro, in Newark, NJ, in March 2013. Other venues may also feature this project as well.
While Carbon Corpus progresses this fall, I'm also participating in a few upcoming exhibitions:
Agents of Change: Artists as Activists, at the Jean and Charles M. Schultz Memorial Library at Sonoma State University, Rohnert Park, CA
The Art of Handmade Paper, at the Sonoma Valley Museum, Sonoma, CA
How to Read a Book, at the Lawton Gallery, University of Wisconsin, Green Bay
And finally,Thread Loves Paper is out! I'm so honored to be included in this publication. To find out how to order a copy, please visit here.
